JOLLY, the genre-defying band from New York City, has endured more than their fair share of struggles in their ten-year career. Everything from having their homes and band gear destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, to seeing the death of a beloved friend and the births of their own children, JOLLY has weathered a lot in the 2010s, much of which might have contributed to a bit of a hiatus since their last release in 2013.
After several years in the works, including a successful Patreon effort, JOLLY is ready to release their fourth album, the aptly-titled Family in June 2019, and are set to tour Europe for the first time in at least a few years.
Sonic Perspectives self-admitted JOLLY fanatic, interviewer Austin Kokel, sat down with JOLLY‘s drummer, Louis Abramson, on a late evening after JOLLY band practice, to talk about all of it, and more.
